to the american public, they do that. even recently, i heard that when the president announced that he put together this database so that they could get people more involved in government, more involved in issues, you know, addressing this through action and all of that, now they're calling it -- he gathered all of the secret information on everybody. ah-ha. see, we told you that your government is not your friend. they're invading your privacy. they have all of this information. they're going to use it against you. it is absolutely crazy! >> stephanie: well, yeah. again, i was just reading a piece from the "daily beast." he was saying, mike tomasky was saying he think the american people are on to the republicans. this is what the president was using the bully pulpit for yesterday. do you think so? this is what they're betting on. this is now the third or so game of chicken in a row they're playing with the president.
